“Many young graduates struggle to gain the practical experience necessary to work in the theatre profession. It’s fantastic to see a programme where young people have the opportunity to train alongside a professional company – it is sure to help when it comes to finding a job or getting into drama school.”

Hedda Beeby, Artistic & Executive Director, Watermill Theatre

“This is an amazing opportunity for young people to train alongside a professional company. There is nothing quite like this anywhere else in the country and it’s the perfect platform to begin a career in the performing arts.”
